Just had wonderful 2 night stay in The Bolt Hole - great setting and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely experience and would definitely recommend it.

Gareth Collyer 25-10-2016
We had a great weekend staying in the Shepherds Hut. Weather was perfect and the local beaches gave us plenty to do. Saturday night outside with a bottle of red wine and a roaring fire could not have been beaten. will come again

Niamh & Elliott Jones 22-10-2016
We had the best time at Little Hill End Barn this week with our little dog Della. Weather was fabulous so spent the days exploring the beach. Martyn and Jo are gorgeous people and cannot wait to go back next year and bring our parents. Wonderful location, beautiful cottage we loved it.

Sally, Paul and Georgina Crawford 24-09-2016
What a fabulous holiday. We stayed in the Lodge with two dogs and our two horses in the nextdoor field. Everything was perfect (even the weather). Accommodation was faultless and Jo and Martin always friendly, helpful and lovely. Martin even fixed our trailer. Beautiful riding not only on the beach but fab rides inland with great views. We will certainly be back. Thank you.

Kelly Keating 25-08-2016
To Jo, Martin & Suzie, I just wanted to say an enormous thank you, for being so incredibly accommodating from the moment we arrived as a group of six with our Horses, until the minute we left, having discovered in torrential rain, that our tent wasn't waterproof, without hesitation you allowed us to move in & takeover the barn & provide us with unlimited wood & the use of your fire pit to keep us warm and dry, Suzie took us on a hack in torrential wind & rain, only to have to walk back,nothing was too much trouble. Your paddocks and stables for the Horses were superb and enormous,many facities from fridge to kettle, a lift to the pub too! You simply could not have done anymore for us, I have never met such genuine accommodating People, the weather was not on our side for two days, however, we will be returning for sure next year & have told many Friends what a fabulous weekend we all had, the scenery on our ride was simply stunning too, we all very much look forward to returning again next year if we are allowed!! Best regards and once again, thank you so much for making it such a fabulous experience for both riders and Horses. Kelly. Xxx

Hazel Gloster 18-08-2016
Absolutely fantastic! Brought two horses and our caravan. Rode on the beach most days, but arena and stable facilities are second to none. Jo and Martin are lovely hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Took the initial guided ride with Sue who is a scream! Martin kept my husband entertained with tractor rides and man toys. Simply perfect! Thank you for a fab holiday xx

Lynda/Andrew 02-06-2016
Thank you for a magical few days which absolutely whizzed by. We were so lucky with the weather. The Bolt Hole was brilliant, we were so comfortable there and had a bbq one eve. We definitely want to come back for a third visit which needs to be longer! We have so many more walks and beaches to visit.

Mandy Mishtenko 23-05-2016
I wanted to let Martin and Jo know what a wonderful holiday me and sarah had with you at Pilton Moor Stables. We had the best 4 days of riding over amazing tracks ever on record. To say you made us welcome was an understatement, from the start to the finish nothing was too much trouble, the horse were in the best paddocks, the stables were immaculate at all times, and you were there for us 24/7 we cannot thank you enough and hope to see you real soon, thank you from the both of us. xxxxxx

Briars Bridleway riding club 10-05-2016
On behalf of the group I would just like to say what a fantastic weekend we all had. We were made to feel so welcome, nothing was to much trouble and the facilities were great. The riding and views were spectacular some of the best I've ever seen and all the horses were so relaxed all weekend. We will definitely be back and are currently in the process of planning our next visit in a few months 😊

Gav and Laura 18-04-2016
*** Amazing experience // Highly recommended *** The Y cwtch was a perfect weekend spot for the both of us and our dog Rowan! We enjoyed amazing weather, the fire pit outside in the evening and the in door log burner in to the night. There was everything you'd need including plates/ cutlery/ glasses / a lantern/ cozy bed with linen. We were greeted with a lovely basket of breakfast in the morning and felt really looked after. Will certainly aim to come back for longer next time - thanks so much for offering such a great holiday x

Lindsey Blayney 14-03-2016
We visited for the day and was greeted with a fabulous welcome. We had a guided tour to the beach with stunning views overlooking the Gower. The facilities look great and we will definitely be back for a short break with friends in tow. Highly recommended.

Heidi Russell 18-10-2015
We stayed in the Shepherds hut on October 17th 2015, the whole experience was just perfect, we took our little dog and ate in the Kings Head early evening before returning to the shepherds hut to light the fires and enjoyed a few drinks sat outside, Martin was so helpful on our arrival and gave us tips on lighting the fires and places to visit, we had a beautiful Sunday lunch at the oxwich bay hotel after leaving and highly recommend that too as have a dog friendly area, I will be recommending this experience to all my friends and will definitely be back :-) x

Emma Smith 04-10-2015
Just had another lovely stay at Pilton Moor stables. Came without the horse this time to enjoy some of the things I can't do on horseback. I walked & scrambled out to the end of The Worms Head and enjoyed stunning views across Rhossilli before having a swim at Fall Bay. The Gower is truly stunning in Autumn, & as ever Jo & Martin made me very welcome. I hope to return before too long - thank you xx

Jenny and Chris Perrett 09-08-2015
We spent a wonderful night in the beautifully decorated cosy Shepherds Hut last week. Enjoying sitting outside next to the fire pit during the evening. Breakfast was delivered the following morning onto the step. Martin was a wealth of local knowledge and directed us down to the local beach at Mewslade. Highly recommend staying here. thank you from Chris, Jenny and Bella

Emma Smith 29-07-2015
I am a very satisfied returning customer who has just had another lovely stay. Many thanks for your warm welcome and hospitality.

Megan and Tom 28-05-2015
We stayed in the Shepherds Hut for 2 nights and had the best time! The Shepherds Huts are gorgeous - so comfortable and literally everything has been thought of! We loved spending our evenings by the fire pit taking in the views after a days walking! Jo and Martin are wonderful and made helped to make our stay everything we could have wished for! Thank you - We will definitely be going back soon!

Emma Smith 20-04-2015
Dear Jo & Martin Thanks for yet another fabulous stay with our horses. As ever we were made very welcome. The shepherds huts are really well appointed and comfortable, and are really cosy at night with the little log burner inside going. The stable block is smart with good quality bedding and mucking out equipment provided. The location of the stables is excellent and we enjoyed several rides with different routes, each with spectacular views over the hills and sea, as well as taking our horses on the vast sandy beaches. A really relaxing and invigorating experience, and we and our horses all returned with a sparkle in all our eyes. Looking forward to visiting again in future - Emma & Emma x

Karen Ambrose 22-08-2014
I just wanted to say thank you for a really wonderful couple of days. Having never taken my horse on holiday before I was quite anxious about the accommodation for me and her, riding facilities etc but you both couldn't have made us feel more at ease. From the well maintained paddocks and school to taking time to explain and show us the riding routes Jo and Martin really made us feel at home. I can't recommend Pilton Moor Stables highly enough and sitting round a fire in front of our shepherds hut in the evening was the cherry on the cake

Anne 03-07-2014
Jo and Martin are the salt of the earth, I have visited on many occasions and right now my daughter is holidaying here with her horses and a friend. The facilities are great for horses, humans and dogs. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. The surroundings.......well, if you wish to holiday in the bright lights and big city this is not the place for you......If you want to see the stars at night, enjoy walking/riding and want peace & tranquillity with stunning, unspoilt, natural countryside and the benefit of beaches within walking distance or a short drive, this is a place you really should visit! Thank you Jo & Martin for looking after Frankie, Tiggy & the horses. xxx

Rebecca & Phil Llanfair Waterdine 06-06-2014
After spending one night in a Shepherds hut in April we vowed to return, and we did in June for longer this time. We took an old camping frying pan and a pot with us that we could use on/over the open fire which was such a bonus as we cooked all our meals out of doors on the open fire. We did take a wonderful lamb casserole with us from the freezer and simply warmed it up, but it was 'outdoors cooking' and brilliant, we also did bacon and egg in the frying pan for breakfast one morning, hard to beat ! We had three days there, two very sunny days and one very rainy day, but to be snuggled up in the Shepherds Hut on a rainy day was quite cozy, no mobile signal, no internet, just good old newspapers and magazines. Walking was superb, we walked from the Hut down to Mewslade and back to Rhosilli village and up onto the Rhosilli Down, the views from which are truly magnificent (a genuine 'bucket list' contender), we could see Tenby, Llanelli, all of Gower, Swansea and on to Port Talbot, we could see Exmoor across the Bristol Channel(thank you Martin for the route). We also had a wonderful close encounters with the nesting barn owls. We met a lady and her daughter who has brought their two horses for a holiday and all four were having the time of their lives, Pilton Moor has certainly not seen the last of us.

Phil & Rebecca Morris (Llanfair Waterdine) 02-05-2014
At Pilton Moor in April this year we had our very first experience of Shepherd's Hut accommodation.It was so brilliant that we have already booked up again for longer in June. Comfy, cosy and very tastefully decorated and furnished and thoughtfully equipped. It is an excellent base for walking on a particularly stunning part of the beautiful Gower Coast.Go prepared and have wonderful time, we are telling all friends and family about it.

Jay, Christopher and Barney the dog 06-01-2014
Thank you so much for a wonderful night spent in the the shepherds hut. It was an idyllic setting, beautifully decorated and really cosy! Martin was really friendly and welcoming! A perfect night away and to top it off we got engaged! Really looking forward to visiting again soon!!!

Family Hall 11-11-2013
Hi My Wife, 16 week old daughter and I have just returned from a week at the cottage, it rained pretty much every day but what do you expect for Wales in November. The cottage has an ideal location, secluded but within walking distance of the beach and village. The cottage itself is spacious for 4 adults (Grandparents paying a visit one evening) and a child, has a great kitchen and cosy lounge area. We are looking to book up a week for next summer!

Liz with Bob & Jess (the dogs) 19-09-2013
We recently stayed for 2 nights in the Shepherds Hut - and just loved it! Although the evening was very misty we cooked over the outside fire, had a cosy night sleep & enjoyed the breakfast that was delivered to the hut the next morning by Martin. Before the weather turned wet & windy, we(thankfully) moved onto Little Hill End, which we loved as well. Thank you the accommodation was excellent!

Jayshea Wilbraham 11-09-2013
Arrived at Pilton Moor to a lovely warm welcome from Jo. Settled horses in to their beautiful fence and rail paddocks and were taken on a tour of our first riding route to make sure we didn\'t get lost. Given maps and great instructions of rides. Nothing was too much trouble for either Jo or Martin. The nicest hosts I\'ve ever met anywhere. Galloped along the best beach in the uk, crossed moors, mingled with wild ponies and enjoyed lovely pub food en route. Can\'t recommend this wonderful place Pilton Moor Stables highly enough.

Laura and Dave 20-08-2013
Absolutely magical stay at the hut, arriving in the pouring rain to a cosy beautifully decorated little shepherds hut was the ticket! Attention to detail was perfect, we had the most relaxing romantic break away from everything waking up to the horses next to us and having breakfast in the sunshine outside. Perfect getaway. Thanks Jo!

Angela and Bob (Yeovil) 24-07-2013
We left home on Monday morning not knowing if we would find anywhere decent to stay for two nights in July. We could not believe our luck when we came across the B and B sign for a Shepherds Hut. An absolutely beautiful hut in a gorgeous spot.Lovely hosts and great value. We will be recommending to all our friends and family and will be back. Thank you so much.

Jo 05-06-2013
In can highly recommend the Shepherds Hut and Horsey B and B. I took my horse for his first ever holiday \'away from home\' and received an excellent welcome. He had a lovely field directly outside the owners home (good for keeping an eye on him!) and my husband and I stayed in the Shepherds hut. Cosy, comfy and relaxing! The hacking was amazing and we were given so much advice on where was best to go for beach/views etc. Highly recommended! We\'ll be back!

Jo, Sarah and Stuart the dog 14-05-2013
A very friendly welcome awaits... We thoroughly enjoyed our time staying in the Shepherd\'s Hut. The incredible attention to detail creates a unique, cosy and comfortable retreat - a must for anyone looking for the ultimate escape or something out of the ordinary. We simply fell in love with the hut and its surroundings; having the lovely horses right outside our door was the icing on the cake! The morning\'s hamper was a lovely touch and we cannot wait to return. I also stayed in Little Hill End Barn some years ago, which was another wonderful experience. I cannot recommend highly enough! Thank you Jo and Martin!

Nic, Andrew, Evan, Delilah & Harvey 06-01-2013
We had a wonderful and restful stay at the magical Little Hill End Cottage over the New Year. It was so homely and wonderfully decorated to give that festive feel. We were so impressed that we have booked again for this year. Such a beautiful area! This cottage is a must see....you will not be disappointed

Rory & Becca 07-10-2012
Had such a lovely time in the Shepherd\'s hut. We had a BBQ and fire pit in the evening under the stars and slept with the wood burner lit in the hut. A wonderful tranquil place in beautiful surroundings. Jo and Martin were great hosts! We will be back.

Fisher family 08-09-2012
We had a wonderful weekend at Pilton Moor Stables. We brought 2 ponies who stayed in a lovely paddock and we camped ourselves. The yard and all the facilities were of a high standard. Jo and Martin could not have been more welcoming and helpful - over the course of our weekend we tested their knowledge of local rides, local pubs and even basic farriery! A fantastic place to come with horses. Highly recommended!

Grace Coleman 19-08-2012
An absolute dream! We stayed in the Shepherd\'s Hut and it was gorgeous. Definitely recommend it to anyone planning a trip to the Gower and looking for a quiet cosy in the beauty of the countryside.

Emma & \"Mr Cool\" 07-08-2012
I am a returning customer and have just had another delightful weekend at Pilton Moor stables. We were made so welcome and Jo and Martin could not have been more caring about us and the horses. This time we took the horses to Langennith beach and also on a day ride across to Llanmadoc hill (with a stop at the Britannia pub!). The views from the hills were absolutely spectacular and the beach is brilliant both for a good gallop and taking the horses for a paddle in the sea. I can\'t reccommend this place highly enough. Thanks & we hope to come back next year for another seaside holiday!

Tom & Sarah - Fergal & RB 15-07-2012
We had a wonderful few days stay with our horses and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Jo and Martin are very knowledgeable about horses and took great care of us all. We were made very welcome and their local knowledge pays big dividends. We rode on Oxwich and Llangennith beaches which are both beautiful! Thanks very much Martin & Jo and we look forward to seeing you again.

rebecca and kevin 23-06-2012
had a lovely few days love the ride on oxwich beach thank you martin and jo see you again soon xxx

Hannah & Simon 03-04-2012
We stayed in the Shepherds Hut last weekend and it was fantastic! It was close to a lovely beach, walks and pubs. We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would definatly do it again. Martin (the owner) was full of local knowledge and helped us plan our stay. The breakfast delivered to our door step on the Sunday morning was the icing on the cake :-D Highly recommend, very good value for money!

Emily and Dan 19-03-2012
We had a really lovely weekend staying in the Shepherds Hut it was cosy and has fantastic views. Jo and Martin were friendly and helpful. We walked to The Worms Head pub which is a must for the views! I would highly recommend staying here we loved it and will hopefully be back soon!

Lizzie 26-01-2012
These are definitely the best holiday cottages we have ever stayed in on Gower. Such lovely taste! We are definitely coming back in the Spring to stay in one of the Shepherds Huts. Keep up the good work!

Ceri 09-01-2012
Lovely site

Ollie & Nick 19-11-2011
We stayed here in mid October for two nights during half term. The shepherds hut was soo cozy with the wood burner. Very peaceful location with some fantastic beaches nearby and a lovely friendly pub. Will definitely come back again. Thank you

Emma 20-07-2011
I have just had the most delightful weekend at Pilton Moor stables. The facilities are excellent, Jo & Martin could not have been more caring and helpful, and words cannot do justice to explain the sheer beauty of the scenery and beaches; its some of the best hacking you could ever hope to experience. Very highly recommended.

Emma & Count Bruno with Emma & Mr.Cool 19-07-2011
I am still grinning. We all had a fantastic stay, so simply set up and lovingly managed. It really did exceed my expectations. Jo & Martin were superb in helping, advising and just being on hand, they really do care. The riding routes are fabulous, take an OS map and go explore, great pubs with rest place for horses, and beaches to just let them fly! it is wonderful we will be back very soon. Thank you Jo and Martin it was a pleasure.

Cath 20-06-2011
Hi, what a lovely website you have. Whilst browsing I spotted \'Sooty\'. I am his ex owner and still after all these years still think of him daily with fond memories. I hope he is still with you and doing well. Goos luck for the future.

bec and kev 12-06-2011
had a brilliant week again thanks jo and martin for making us feel so welcome we will be returning again thanks xxxx

lyb bunyan 11-01-2011
Hi Jo Martin and all 2 and 4 foots just a quickie to wish you all a very happy 2011 and here\'s to Jackie and I hopefully managing to come see you again. Weather is bleak,cold,damp and grumpy, so need the lovely hills and fields and open moorland and sea to bring the smiles back to our faces quick smart!!! love Lyn Heidi and Laurel XXXXX

Lyn Bunyan 06-11-2010
Phew!! Breathtaking views, superb facilities for both equines and humans. Jo, Martin and all the ladies and not forgetting Will and Louise - we were all made to feel \"home\" for our long planned holiday Sabine from Germany,Jackie and Hilary from Horley and myself Lyn from Buckinghamshire. Our wonderful coloured horses all settled in instantly, paddocks and grazing could not have been improved on, fencing was excellent. We had no use for the stables but would have jumped right in there if needed they to were clean,light,airy and huge!!! Horsey heaven doesnt get any better than this. The cottage Jo was simply divine we spent hours admiring each room. (And of course enjoying our wine and cider) Great food was had at the local pubs and we were spoilt for things to do when not riding. Our 4 horses Heidi, Laurel, Frankie and Alamo excelled themselves for their first time ever being together on our long rides. The moors just took our breath away and seeing the wild ponies just enhanced the whole experience. But, nothing can commit to the feeling of one riding your own horses through the \"white horses\" on the beach of Rhossili, that truly has to be the most fantastic horse moment of my life and I know I speak for my companions our faces I do believe told the story and the joy in our horses eyes and feet made it even more special. So, Jo Martin you will be seeing us all again thats for sure and I have a feeling next time it really will be like \"COMING HOME\". You both made our stay so perfect and relaxing with stories and laughter and to embrace us as part of your family with Dad,daughters and Mouse (hopefully progressing still to wellness)and all your lovely fourfooters, can I thank you again for making a childhood dream since the age of 7 years become a \"DREAM COME TRUE\". Special hugs and love and thanks worth every single penny and anyone even with a small thought in your mind of shall I or not - Definitely a YES you will not be wishing for anything more at this fine establishment of caring and knowledgable horseman/women to make your holiday also a Dream Come True.See you all in 2011 - thats if you have any spaces left!!! Love Lyn Heavenly Heidi and Lovely Laurel. XXXX

Katie and Tom 14-10-2010
Had the perfect weekend away in the Shepherds Huts. We had beautiful weather and an absolutely amazing time. Jo and Martin were very accomodating and we were delighted with our hut. It was even warm enough to have a BBQ dinner on the picnic table and BBQ provided outside. We also recommend the King Arthur pub for a cosy drink or meal! We will definitely be back again! Thank you! Tom & Katie x

Julie Davies 29-06-2010
Had a brilliant time whitsun weekend, fantasticcompany, views to die for, Martyn and his wife could not have been more helpful.Looking forward to next year already

Sarah and Sue 20-06-2010
Hi, We have just got back from a perfect weekend. Jo, Martin and Cericould not have made us feel more welcome . They did everything they could to make sure that wehad a lovely time - and we did. The riding is simply beautiful , and the views are breath-taking. Would highly recommend an escort and Ceri was reallyeasy to get along with - as well as being a great gate opener.Worth remembering to take some 20ps for the showers - we got caught out on the first day. We will be back - and thank you for a simply wonderful break.

A and Z 25-05-2010
It was absolutely perfect. The landscape and the hut are unbelievable. Everything was really nice inside the hut,the bed, the fire place, the clours, the horses, etc etc..., and of course the breakfast in the wooden basket. We will definitely come back in the summer time for either the hut or camping there in the field. I can say that it was my our best and relaxing holiday there. Thanks Jo and Markus :-)

Jackie \'Overross livery\' 09-05-2010
Well what can we say!!! We had an amazng time, our trips to your stables are becoming the thing of legend in our area and alot of enquries we have from new customers are keen to know when the next trip s going to be!. Trailored to the lanes near Oxwich bay and had a wonderful beach ride whle some of the others went to Rhossili, second day Port Eynon was a lovely easy hack from the campsite. Really words cannot fully describe the AMAZING breakfast put on by Jo, for the gutzy amongst us I dont mide saying it s the breakfast that is as much of the attraction as the riding. Not to be outdone, Martin and his amazing battery charger!!! for all our flat batteries and generally beng stand in emergency \'Dad\'. Brace yourself we are plannng 1 if not 2 more trips before year end. xx

Céline and Tom 24-04-2010
We had a lovely stay in the shepherds hut! It was a cold night outside but the log fire made the hut really warm and cosy. The breakfast was great and we felt very welcome. It\'d be lovely to come back again in the summer!

sophie croxford and philippa walker 15-12-2009
thanks for such a welcome stay we had a brilliant time despite the wet weather! We were made to feel so welcome and loved the beach.We will definatley recommend to friends Thanks sophie and Philippa

Helen 07-12-2009
We (a group of 7 friends) brought our horses to Pilton Moor Stables in September 2009. We had a wonderful time and could not fault anything! It\'s defo worth getting Ceri to show you they way to the Beach if you are a first timer and if you camp, like we did Jo and Suzi make a killer breakfast!! Thanks all, we will be back! :-)

Brian 03-12-2009
We stayed in the Shepherd\'s hut for 2 nights over the summer. We were generally very lucky with the weather although even when there was an occasional downpour it was very cosy and warm inside. The interior is really well thought out, theviews and surrounding countryside is stunning and you get a lovely hamper of breakfast goodies and a rechargeable lantern delivered to your door each morning. We will definately be back!

Jo, Claire, Janey, Penny & Sam 22-11-2009
Absolutely fab!The weather was foul when we went on our walks, but the warming log fire and cosy cottage more than made up for it!Beautiful location.We can\'t wait to go back

jenny and belle :) 01-11-2009
came back for third time on work experiance and loved it again will never get bored of being at pilton moor stables!! i hope that my next visit will include spanacks :D x

Sandra White and family and Clover 10-09-2009
I could rave about the stunning views, carpets of heather and foaming waves on the beach, or of safe off road riding and gulps of pure sea air. I could also compliment the facitilties -Clover\'s lush green paddock and an unfloodable menage.The real memorable part of this holiday however, were the people. Three cheers for Jo and Martin- the absolute salt of the earth. They were always ready with encouragement, humble advice and help(and a cup of tea!)And Ceri and Mouse - what a pair! We tucked in behind Mouse\'s bum and off we went. Calm, careful, kind, patient and honest - both horse and rider. We towed my fiesty mare for 5 hours for the first time to get there.We were nervous and it took considerable courage for us to make the effort, but we were all so glad we did.Clover took it all in her stride and behaved herself.I would encourage anyone to do the same. The rest of my family cycled, surfed and relaxed when I was riding so it was an excellent family holiday, despite the rain. Thank you for giving me confidence and making me feel good about myself and my horse. I wish I could bottle the experience and bring it home.

jenny and belle 05-09-2009
my second visit and still the best ever place for an amazing horsey holiday. loved it even more than last time. loved the rides, the beach, the Sheppard\'s hut me and my mum stayed in :), and especially the people on the yard (jo, martin, and kerry) you are all amazing people and i cannot wait to come back for my work experiance :). have given details to everyone on the yard and have told them they have to come to pilton moor stables next year. thank you all so much for another brill holiday with love tinker-belle, jenny and vicky x x

Clare & Justin August bank holiday 2009 31-08-2009
We stayed in the Shepherd\'s hut for two nights. It was absolutely fabulous. The hut itself is so well thought about with lovely decor and much attention given to all the finer details. We had a lovely breakfast each morning at 8am on the dot and nothing was too much for our hosts. This experience was wonderful and we would reccomend it to anybody who is looking for a quiet and peacful get away. We will be back!! Clare & Justin

Vick Cutler 28-08-2009
We brought my daughter\'s pony for B&B and rented the shepherds hut for a week in mid August this year and we couldn\'t have had a better holiday.We loved the accommodation and its location was idyllic.The breakfast provided by Jo and Martin in a hamper outside our door was like opening a Christmas stocking each morning.It was great to light the woodburner just to be able to dry off when the weather was wet but I imagine it would be very cosy in colder parts of the year.Jo, Martin & Ceri really put themselves out to make our stay enjoyable.I would recommend the stables and yard which has fantastic facilities and the shepherds hut, not only for its location on Gower but also because it made a holiday with a difference. Would love to come back again.Thank you.

We have only just come to ground from being on such a high from our short break with you!We all had a fantastic time - great riding, top information from yourselves, everyone being so helpful.We have visited the Gower often without the horses and were always envious of riders we saw - we couldn\'t believe that we were actually there - riding on the beach!It was a dream fufilled and one we hope to make an annual event. Our stay at Pilton Moor was fabulous, without hassle or concern.As with the majority of horse owners our main concerns are for our horses - but I can recommend your stables 100%.The paddocks spotless from manure, beautifully post & railed fenced, a good size and shape on level pasture with a good covering of grass.We loved the fact we could stay in our trailers next to the field to keep an eye on them!It was like pony club camp all over again.With better facilities and friendlier people! We were particularly grateful of the powerful hot shower loosening all our tight muscles, the kind offer of a electric kettle for a cuppa and most of all Martin who was hassled for hammers, tape, air for the tyres - thank you! Our only regret is that we couldn\'t stay longer. Many thanks - we hope it wont be long until we see you again. Rachel & the Forest gang! x

Apparently we are the first carriage drivers Jo & Martin have had to stay. Ideal safe stabling with rubber flooring; secure yard for horsebox. Driving routes start & finish on local roads (which suited us) but following a few phone calls from our hosts, keys for locked gates were made available for a wonderful drive on National Trust land to Worms Head and with further help from Jo & Martin, a bridleway track from Llanddewi to Rhossilli Down. Many horse-friendly pubs in the area, all highlighted by our hosts, who made us most welcomed and went out of their way to help us.

This couldn\'t be more perfect - good access by road with a trailer/lorry and then easy parking when you arrive; excellent facilities in the tack room and kitchen; safe and tidy turn-out paddocks very close by; sheltered grooming and tack-up shed; fabulous stables if you need them; and best of all some of the most incredible riding you\'ll ever experience right on the doorstep! Jo, Martin and Ceri were so helpful and informative - I managed to forget my bridle and Jo immediately saved the day by loaning me one; what an angel! I would thoroughly recommend starting off with an escort from Ceri who pointed out memorable landmarks and gave clear directions to lots of great rides, and was excellent company too. Thoroughly recommended - Thank you!

this was my best ever holiday so far thanks to pilton moor stables, i recommend it to anyone who is looking for a fun exiting and amazing experience. this has been the best holiday in my whole life and we are planning to go back next year, and i still cant wait despite only just getting back today. thank you to everyone at pilton moor stables for making my stay really fun! the beaches around are really amazing and great for flat out gallops that go on for ever and the hack to the beach is also brilliant and really fun and give an amazing experience. i also think that the ride to the beach and then back to the pub for a drink was a great ride. the views from over the moor/really big hill is great as it looks over the beach. i really do recommend pilton moor stables to anyone who owns a horse!see you next year!xxx

We held our adults’ riding weekend at Pilton Moor and had a fantastic few days. The horses’ accommodation was far better than ours with a choice of large stables or post and rail paddocks with good grass while we slept in the trailers! We did however have a spacious barn to shelter from the rain and hold our barbecue and a lovely clean shower that was very welcome after a long day in the saddle. It’s ideal for riding clubs or large parties as there was plenty of room on the yard to park our 12 trailers and get our 16 horses ready. It goes without saying that the riding was incredible and the views spectacular, some of the best riding I’ve experienced. Jo and Martin were always incredibly friendly and helpful, going well beyond the call of duty with the kettle on for when we got back from our 5 hour ride and a lift to the local pub for us. Thanks also to Ceri for being such a knowledgeable and informative guide – we would have been literally lost without you!
